2014 NBA Mock Draft: First-Round Projections Entering NCAA Tournament

You hate to see an injury affect the NBA draft, considering we saw it happen last year, but Joel Embiid's stress fracture has raised a bit of concern over his durability.

And with the NCAA tournament upon us, his draft-day challengers will have one last opportunity to pitch their games to NBA decision-makers.

Unfortunately for Embiid, there also isn't a high demand for centers at the top of the draft board, either. And because of it, he's fallen from the No. 1 spot.

Still, this is a fluid situation. And it will stay like that until March Madness is complete and Embiid undergoes a physical during the pre-draft process. 

But for now, we have a new top dog, as well as a new prospect to move into our 2014 top three. 

 

Draft order set based on current NBA standings. All future trades have been taken into account.
